Freshmen Students


You have the drive to make a difference. Here is the place you can do it. Let's get started.

Expert faculty

Everyone says they have professors who care. We live it. No matter what your major is, you'll learn from professors who bring industry experience and focus on your success.

Hands-on learning

Success is measured not only by knowledge of the subject matter but also by the proven ability to apply it. Think outside the classroom and apply your learning to the real world. Here, you’ll engage in life-changing research, internships and leadership opportunities.

Uplifting community

We pride ourselves on having a community that will both challenge you to be your best and be a helping hand in making it happen.


All U.S. residents pay in-state tuition, and we offer generous scholarships and financial aid. We've also had the lowest cumulative tuition increase of any Michigan public university over the last decade.

I’m glad I chose CMU because of all the chances to develop myself as a student, leader and overall person.
